Gems for Sight: jewelry designs from blind artist
As seen on Manhattan User's Guide:
shopping… Sixteen award-winning jewelry designers gather in SoHo, December 18 & 19, to support Gems for Sight. Susan Michel, a NYC jewelry designer, is a legally blind artist who began losing her vision five years ago. She continues to produce gorgeous designs, thanks to a dedicated staff that sketches her ideas and projects them onto a large screen where Susan, who retains less than 10% of vision, can view them. The sale is at Divine Studio, 21 E. 4th [Laf] 888.738.3400, 12/18 and 19, 11-7. You'll find works by Ms. Michel, Robert Lee Morris, Jessica Fields, Amáli, Tarra Rosenbaum, and many others.
